New Noise Playlist: Vacationer


We hope you’re all excited as we are for New Noise 007 this Thursday, December 4th at the Gibson Guitars DC Showroom. Along with putting on HAERTS‘ first live show in DC, we’ll also be bringing back All Things Gold alum and one of our favorite bands of late, Vacationer, for a proper headlining set. Vacationer’s Kenny Vasoli was awesome enough to make a playlist for us featuring five songs he’s been playing on repeat recently. Check them out after the jump, and make sure to grab your tickets for New Noise below.

TICKETS: Tixelated

STREAM: Vacationer – “Everyone Knows’



STREAM: Les Loups – “Change (Vanilla Instrumental Remix)”

I wanted this mix to be on an instrumental hip-hop tip and the first beat-maker that I had in mind was Vanilla. I went to his soundcloud to soundbrowse and stumbled upon this gem of a remix that I’d never heard. It’s on par with his usual high quality material. So flip it on and let it bang, people.” — Kenny Vasoli


STREAM: Teebs – “Youve Changed (Original)”

I just became enlightened to Teeb’s beats a few weeks ago. Where have I been? I love both of his records, I’ve repeating through them ever since my discovery of the man.” — KV


STREAM: Big Friendly Giant – “Maximum Roach(3.4)”

This is Matt Young’s (of Vacationer and Body Language) hip-hop project. Very inspirational in the free-time beats I attempt to make myself and also in the rhythmic department of Vacationer. I highly recommend his mixtape.” — KV


STREAM: Machinedrum – “Sacred Frequency”

Since the Body Language guys introduced me to Travis’ work I’ve become a major fan. He is a unique master of the craft, and prolific at that. This is definitely my favorite track from his latest LP, Room(s).” — KV


STREAM: Shigeto – “Field Day”

I saw Shigeto open for Star Slinger a year or two ago and he was definitely the highlight of the night for me. Such a unique spin on an electronic music live performance. His latest record is his best work in my opinion, I love his integration of sythns, sequencing and organic instrumentation. I was torn in picking one song, but “Field Day” surely ranks up with his best.” — KV
